The Seven Last Words of Christ refers to the seven short phrases uttered by Jesus on the cross, as gathered from the four Christian Gospels. The Crucifixion of Jesus has served as inspiration to a great many visual artists and composers over the centuries. In particular, at least 16 composers have written musical settings of the Seven Last Words, for various combinations of voice and/or instruments.
The best known of these settings is probably the instrumental setting by Joseph Haydn (see below), who produced two different arrangements of his own work - one of them for choir - and approved a third.
